Candy Gift Baskets – The Perfect Gift for the Candy Lover

Are you having a tough time coming up with a gift idea for that hard to buy for person on your gift list?  A great all in one solution that just about anyone will love is a candy gift basket or candy bouquet.  You can either create your own candy gift basket or bouquet, or leave it to the experts and buy a readymade gift basket or bouquet.  We’ll discuss the pro and cons of each one, as well as give you some other great ideas.

Creating Your Own Candy Gift Basket or Bouquet

Pros: A great benefit to putting together your own candy gift basket is you can save a lot of money by purchasing all of the ingredients yourself.  Another great advantage is you have more control over what you want inside the basket.  If you know the person you creating the basket for, then you should have pretty good idea of the different kinds of candy they like.  They may like old fashioned candy like Necco Wafers, Licorice, and bubble gum cigars.  Or they might like a lot of the candy that is popular today, like Snickers, Butterfinger, and M&M’s.  Or they might like a combination of both, but the point you have total control of whatever you want to put in your basket.

Cons: One of the disadvantages to putting together your own basket is that it will take some time, and some work.  You will have to head out to your local super market or candy store to purchase the candy, shop for the basket or container, and purchase any other gifts you might want to add like a coffee mug or plush toy.  Also, it does take a bit of skill to craft the gift basket into a stunning display.  If you think you might have some trouble with putting it all together, you should think about whether or not it’s worth the trouble.

Purchasing a Readymade Candy Gift Basket or Bouquet

Pros:  The main advantage of purchasing a readymade gift basket is the entire process of creating the basket is already done for you.  If you purchase from reputable vendor, these baskets look very professional will make a big impression on the recipient.  Online vendors will allow you to send the basket to anyone in the U.S., which is a great advantage if you are buying for someone out of state.  That will also save you hassle of packing the gift basket and hoping it arrives safely.

Cons:  A big disadvantage is that you don’t have that much control over what you want in the basket.  If you’re giving the basket in person, you can always add what you want, but that is not possible if you plan on having the basket sent directly to the recipient.  Readymade baskets will usually cost more than if you went out and purchased all the ingredients and put the basket together yourself, although, the additional costs may be worth it if you add up all of the time and work.

Whatever option you choose, a candy gift basket makes a great gift to give to just about anyone, on any occasion.  If you plan on putting together the gift basket yourself, YouTube has some really great videos showing you how to do that.
